Learn to identify the brightest stars, planets, and constellations overhead each month, as Chabot College Astronomy Professor Scott Hildreth gives you a personal tour of the sky on your iPod or favorite MP3 player. Each short episode will highlight a few bright objects you can see, without a telescope, around 9 or 10 PM at night early in the month. And the comnpanion website (http://www.chabotcollege.edu/faculty/shildreth/astronomy/skycasts/index.htm) provides skymaps and links. While written for observers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and especially for astronomy students at Chabot College in Hayward, California, the podcast will be useful for anyone located anywhere in the world around 40 degrees North Latitude. As long as you can find a location outside free from really bright street and city lights, you can enjoy the stars.
